    Hey Russian. Rifle brand is called a Unique, not made any more, very accurate and reliable. They are semi hand built and hard to find now, a few of the boyz on here have them also.
    Awesome balance and lovely to use.

    first impressions of the Ruger No.1 are very positive, i always wanted one - they're an iconic american rifle & and to my eye an attractive rifle, especially the varmint model . . . looking forward to spending more time behind the trigger and loading/shooting the .204 cartridge
    only problem for the Ruger is i will always end up comparing it to the VarTarg . . that rifle is a ferkn machine so its got a hard job to shine in such company

    Trust the French to come up with that name ha. I thought the unique was a typo.

    You Guys have reminded me to get the Unique out for a walk tomorrow - just about to send the Savage hmr to Queenstown - hope he can lug it around better than I could - who needs a bull barrel anyway?

    I like to give possums a leg up into a Timms - they seem to like a ramp



    Hope he enjoyed the blue stuff and his apple

    Beautiful rifle @viper. In 1962 I worked at Tisdalls sports shop in PNth after school. Tisdalls' stocked the Unique and my job every Friday afternoon was to oil all of the rifles in the rack with "Youngs 303" oil. There was a row of about 25 rifles, unlocked, and available to access by the public. I still remember the beautiful sheen that the oil put on the Unique's blueing. You are so privileged to own one and I'm glad that you enjoy it.
    time out and viper like this.

    Thanks Tahr, they are very cool little rifles and lovely to handle and shoot. I don't take mine out a lot these days because of the sheer volume of shooting I am doing now . The accuracy amazes me but the reliability is astounding. Mine will shoot subs ( dirty ) and go 700 - 1000 rds before I get the odd jam. Shoots everything, cycles everything . Keep your eye on Trademe , they do come up. A mate of mine got one after using mine for an afternoon. $600, one owner with original manual.
    If I see one I will let you know.....unless you already have one of course.
